1. Damage and defects in railway materials: influence of mechanical and thermal damage on crack initiation and propagation
Sammanfattning : With rising societal concern for the environment, railways offer travelers a sustainable alternative to other forms of fossil-fueled transportation. In order to be competitive with airlines, for example, the railway industry must provide safe, efficient, and affordable service. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A major concern for the railway industry today is the problem of rolling contact fatigue (RCF) damage in wheels and rails as a result of increased traffic, accelerations, and loading conditions. The wheel/rail contact condition that occurs in railway applications is complex, and it is essential to understand the associated damage from combined mechanical and thermal loadings in order to predict component life and develop appropriate maintenance systems.
